Finding Relief for Vertigo Symptoms in Ménière’s Disease

Ménière’s disease (MD) is an idiopathic disorder characterised by recurrent episodes of vertigo, unilateral sensorineural hearing loss, tinnitus and aural fullness. The development of endolymphatic hydrops – an increased fluid within the inner ear organ – is observed (or presumed) in all individuals with MD. Vertigo symptoms can be managed through a combination of dietary salt restriction, stress reduction and medical therapy (betahistine, diuretics, or both).
